Default 505 Willys MB Built/Restored

$26,500 Cdn Negotiable
I’ve decided after building this Jeep over the last 3 years to part with it so I can build another. I only have room for one in the stable so…. This Jeep runs very smooth and is in excellent running condition. I’ve put over 500 miles on it in 3 months with no problems.
This MB is serial # MB139184 and was a Canadian Contract 505 Jeep. D.O.D. was April 29, 1942
The body is an MD Juan kit that was (fixed) to fit on the MD Juan frame properly. Everything was adjusted to ensure a clean fit. The drive train on the original vehicle had parts from W.O.F. as well as a mixed bag of dated differentials. Everything was torn down and rebuilt and the W.O.F. transmission was replaced with a wartime T-84 version. The Jeep has the original (Fatty) rear drive shaft as well.
The engine is a wartime block that was rebuilt professionally but does have an early 1946 head which is identical to a wartime head except for the cast number which can’t be seen with the oil filter bracket in place. Radiator was professionally rebuilt but again is an early post war type. There is no canvas top included in the sale. I never needed one and didn’t see the need for one.Tires are all USA Made and the rims are MD Juan. The Jeep is fitted with the brush guards on the headlights, electric windshield wiper, lift rings and the rear differential light for B.O. driving.
For a full rundown of this jeep look at my Facebook build page at Sean’s Willys 1942 MB Jeep Restoration and Build
FYI This vehicle has all the standard oil leaks, nothing serious just marks its territory.
I can provide more photos and information upon request.
